    Sorry that RL business caused me to abandon my admin duties, but hoping that I can return as a player this round.

    So I got bored and made a map of the seats for this Congress. The player seats are bold colors. If the player didn't specify their seat then I just guessed based on win margins IRL. Because of some changes like with Ward in his normally GOP seat and O'Dwyer in the Dem RI seat, I changed some narrow seats to the GOP.

    New York State - Vermont Republic Border Dispute! This paper has received reports that a diplomat from the Vermont Republic recently arrived in the New York state capitol to meet with their Governor and state representatives. The issue at hand is that Vermont desires to join these United States but the state of New York has a number of claims upon lands in the Vermont Republic. These claims have not been pressed in any significant way, but would need to be settled prior to Vermont's admission. In what must be a shock to the diplomat, various representatives of the state are reported to have suggested that they consider Vermont to still be a part of New York! Vermont has declared itself to be an independent nation since 1777. In 1781, the Confederation Congress passed an act stating Vermont would be admitted as a state provided it renounced claims east of the Connecticut River and west of Lake Champlain, which is claimed by New York. Vermont has not done this, hence there is this dispute. While this matter was not generally thought to be of great importance, it seems the diplomat's visit has prompted a great reaction, with representatives stating Vermont should join New York voluntarily and other representatives suggesting annexation. One representative of New York is reported to have said, "If force is necessary to retain our state integrity, then so be it." We remind the reader that the New York Governor is elected by those same representatives and not by the public, so it may be that he shares their aggressiveness or feels pressured to do so. New York's representatives seem to be a contentious, ambitious lot. If Vermont desires to join the US despite the surprising aggressiveness shown by the New York representatives, then it would be well that Vermont simply compensate the state of New York in order to prompt the state to renounce any claims. If New York seeks to desire the use of force to press their claim, we can not support this. We can not see the usefulness in the Carolinas or any other state of this new union to support such an annexation. The public will not stand for a war of annexation to press one sole state's claims on territory that stems from the old crown. Any Representative or Senator who would support such an annexation would surely be voted out of office at the next election and rightfully so.

    I kind of want to do something loosely based off the old Revolution America idea. Everyone would be a Governor of a State of their choice and they could pick between 1: Democratic 2: Republican 3: Socialist Party 4: Nationalist Party and the background is the south is ready to secede again and start a second civil war so each state will have three options to choose from 1: Stay loyal to the Union 2: Stay Neutral or try to Leave Peacefully (There will be laws put in place to make it hard to leave without a lot of burden of debt) 3: Join the Resistance. Each person will start out as a Governor of the State they choose and this will be a full on "Second Political Sim" like Capitol Hill but different and I will be hiring people to help me build the idea and the forums up but I do want this to remain hosted on TedderVision. Please reply if interested in playing a game similar to this so I can gauge interest.

    MAYOR WILLIAMS JOINS LEWINSKY AND GUTIERREZ IN BID FOR WEST COAST GOVERNOR Democratic San Diego Mayor Christopher Williams has jumped into the race for West Coast Governor for the 2019 Special Election. Williams joins Democratic Congressman and West Coast Majority Whip Carmen Gutiérrez and Republican Businessman Sergey Kirov Lewinsky. Each of the contenders is credible and fairly strong, and this early in the campaign there isn't clear favorite. Of course, this is the progressive West Coast, so whichever of the two Democrats makes it through the Democratic Primary will be an early favorite, even against a popular immigrant, tech tycoon like Lewinsky. But, there is a long history of Democratic states electing business-friendly, centrist Republicans, so let's not count Lewinsky out just yet. It is sure to be an exciting campaign season. We will keep you up to date here.

    OOC: I'm hinting at it strongly but keeping plausible deniability. I'm also trying to use state pride but not make other states angry.

    Could we please start putting more PES at the end of our bills. As much as I would love to go look up paragraph 3 of USC section 1152 I really don't want to. Just give something short like, "bill allows funding for a wall on the southern border."

    Democrats need to do better as recruiting new players. Every round so far has ended in either a landslide 2020 victory for the GOP or the DNC Chair getting arrested for donating to a terrorist organization

    Nothing of note at this time. They are helping marginally against isis when possible. There are still low level border disruptions as you might expect, but no, terrorists have not embedded with civillians who marched enough masse on the border, and no the Israeli army has not fired on any of them.

    Well, I don't really hold with resolutions as such, but I will offer a few comments about the year closing and the upcoming one. -It was a year of endings. I'm sure everybody noticed this Parker isn't a Veteran. 2017 was the last complete year I will wear the Nation's cloth; I have reached mandatory retirement. And it was the first complete year we were without "Richard Candler." VUSA vets will remember he was a memorial to a very close RL friend of mine that passed on in 2016. Sim-wise, this Parker only shares a name with Parker 1.0-5.0. I retired from simming as I got tired of fighting with the Cool Kids and being a Party of One. Thinking I'll see how far I can go playing within the rules instead of just ignoring them when I think they're stupid.
